A lil bit of this and a lil bit of that

These last few weeks have been a potpourri of events at work. They've kept me tongue tied, feet tied, blog tied and basically kept me away from my favourite activities such as having fun.

No doubt this medicine (hard work) will serve me well in the long run and keep me free from illness in the world of financial crisis. But it's still medicine.

I am planning to go to Germany come the 18th November, but that plan is currently in a bit of a conundrum as the German embassy (peace be on their souls) has granted me a visa interview date for 2nd December. It seems there has been a speeding up of their parallell universe vis-a-vis my own. So they're so far ahead in time that I seemed to have missed the boat :-)
Well hope floats - so i'm hopeful (though not too enthu about it that things will resolve themselves and I will still go).
Actually I'd much prefer to stay here!!

The winters are coming in and the warm clothes are coming out. The weather however is still a lil bit of this and a lil bit of that - hot and cold remix - involving a lot of clothing confusion.
I wore my first sweater today (a half sleeve one from school days) and lo behold - i was on display at work as everybody was like - "is that your start of winter announcement"?

My creativity has also been wanting to do a lot... but i've just felt that wee bit lazy and hence residing at square One.... I've been thinking of doing a lit bit of this but not really ending up anywhere near that!!

If life was a Hollywood film... the action would be intense,
It's actually closer to Bollywood... with the same people and the same stories.

Giving up on real life opportunities to create the iconic twists, the hallmark of great cinema and it's storytellers. If every story had the same ending, how would one imagine the what-ifs of life?

Some stories come out best when they start with an ending. It makes for more poignant stories when you deal with certain characters. There is an element of drama on an unfulfilled love story or unrequited love too.

The mundane is never enough for some of us. The happily ever after is an ending from the fairytales of the brothers Grimm.

The piano man

Sitting bored in the mall when we could be shopping for her gift. The lady is on an official call, so I'm sitting by the wayside observing the man in the centre of the atrium. He's playing a piano. Hence the name - piano manHe's playing a melody oblivious to the sea of humanity around him. No mean task as it is. His tunes run a plethora of melody with no fixed agenda as it is. He looks around hoping someone would make a request - but the crowd treats him like they would an invisible entity. There's pain in the back of his mind and heart. Nothing hurts an artiste more than invisibility. He never knew he'd end up like this playing the walking melody to thousands. His music had always been planned on the good graces of melody with people singing in chorus.
That things did not go as planned, well no surprise there. Circumstance might have been fortuitous had he been willing to bend over. Ever the true blooded artiste, he'd chosen the path less traveled.Now the wai…
